Northern Nevadans Listen to Duncan Hunter

Posted by sierrascrapper on December 31, 2007

After making a round of campaign stops in Northern Nevada after the Christmas holiday, Congressman Duncan Hunter found that Nevadans support his run for President.  Congressman Duncan Hunter attended a townhall meeting in Reno on December 27, 2007 where there were almost 50 in attendance.  All 3 of the local affiliate stations turned out to cover the meeting and interview Congressman Hunter.  There were two other local stations and the local newspaper there to cover the event.   Hunter spoke on the issues of unfair trade practices with China, the threat of terrorism in our country through our open borders and our rising problem with illegal immigration.  General Chuck Yeager also spoke at the townhall meeting and told his story about how he broke the sound barrier and how the creation of jets came about. 

The next evening, Congressman Hunter and General Yeager spoke to a standing room only crowd in Carson City, NV.  There were over 100 people in attendance.  Nevada’s First Lady Dawn Gibbons was there to meet him when he walked in the door and led a cheering section as he entered into the townhall meeting.  The crowd in Carson City were very receptive to his message and liked each of the points that Hunter discussed.  He spoke more in depth on the issues of education, the War on Terror, Iran, unfair trade with China and our economy.  General Yeager also told his story of his career in the Air Force and told them why he supported Duncan Hunter.  The people who showed up at this townhall meeting were so thrilled to support Duncan Hunter and they were anxious to spread the word about him to their friends.  They all left with at least one of the new CDs that the campaign has just released.  This CD is an excellent tool to spread the message about Duncan Hunter and it’s easy for folks to listen to it in their car on the way to work or wherever they are traveling.

During this trip Congressman Hunter and General Yeager toured the Nevada State Museum in Carson City and were able to see the Carson City Mint and see how the machine operated.   Congressman Hunter also visited a locally owned and operated outdoor outfitter called Mark Fore and Strike.  This business has been owned by 4 generations of the same family.  Congressman Hunter enjoyed meeting with the Stodtmeisters (owners) and appreciated their knowledgeable staff who helped him pick out a gift for the Yeagers. 

Congressman Hunter always has a straight-forward answer for any question that is put out.  At the Reno meeting, a local Hispanic activist named Gilbert Cortez who has led protests against ICE raids in our area asked Congressman Hunter how he is going to deal with the problem with illegal aliens in our nation.  Congressman Hunter told him straight up that they would have to go home and come back the right way and stand in line.  Many of the attendees thought that Mr. Cortez would start a major commotion, but Hunter was so clear and steadfast on his answer that Mr. Cortez didn’t have any further comment and it appeared that he actually agreed with Hunter on this issue.  Another voter in Carson City had a question for Congressman Hunter regarding the issue of abortion.  He wanted to know exactly how Congressman Hunter felt about abortion when it came to cases like rape or serious retardation.  Congressman Hunter stood true to his pro-life beliefs and told him that every fetus inside of a woman is considered a child of God and that they all deserve to have the same rights as humans.  The gentleman had no further response as he agreed with what Hunter had to say.  It was amazing to see Congressman Hunter stand up for his beliefs and not waiver.  It’s doubtful that other candidates would stand so strongly on this issue if confronted with it face to face.

Congressman Duncan Hunter Issues Warning to Columbia University

Posted by sierrascrapper on September 24, 2007

For Immediate Release…

Hunter warns Columbia University

Cancel Invitation to Iranian President

September 24, 2007 Manchester, NH… At 11:30 a.m. this morning Congressman Duncan Hunter is holding a Town hall Meeting at the New England College, 98 Bridge Street, Henniker, New Hampshire in the Simon center.

Hunter will issue a statement directed to Columbia University and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visit. In a recent press conference Hunter said “To host the leader of Iran when he supports terrorists that are moving deadly roadside bombs across the Iraqi border to be used against American troops is a slap in the face for the entire 165,000 men and women in Iraq and to those that have served before them.”“If President Lee Bollinger follows through with this hosting of the leader of Iran, I will move in Congress to cut off every single type of Federal Funding to Columbia University. If the left-wing leaders of academia will not support our troops, they, in the very least, should not support our adversaries.” “This event, following the slanderous action of MoveOn.org, depicting General Petraeus as “General Betray Us,” in the New York Times represents the emergence of the extreme left-wing in American politics.”

Congressman Duncan Hunter is RIGHT on this issue regarding the Iranian President’s visit to Columbia University.  Are there any other Presidential candidates standing up to do something about this outrageous act????  ONLY DUNCAN HUNTER is standing firm and telling the university that this is not acceptable.  Our country needs a leader who is not afraid of our enemies and will do what it takes to keep our enemies in check.

Responding to comments by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that he is prepared to fill the “power vacuum” in Iraq, former House Armed Services Chairman and Republican presidential contender Duncan Hunter challenged the Bush administration to step up plans for a strike against Iran. 

Congressman Hunter told a group of veterans and supporters, “Iran has made their intentions abundantly clear in the Middle East, specifically with respect to military action against Israel.  Never before in American history has a nation so blatantly engaged in saber-rattling without facing serious military reprisals from the U.S.”  He continued, “The White House recently declared Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization for their obvious support for the terrorist insurgency in Iraq.  They are aiding and abetting the killing of our military service men and women.  In my book, that’s an act of war and such action ought to have military consequences.  Responding in hollow political or diplomatic rhetoric only encourages more affronts from Iran.”

Now…take a look at this extremely GRAPHIC review of why the Iranian President can claim they have no homosexuals in their country.  Is this what Americans want to be subjected to??  How do you think he deals with all the other problems his country faces that don’t agree with his beliefs?  YEP…same outcome.  If we don’t stand up to a nation like this and call him at this game of leading a proxy war against us in Iraq, we will all be wishing we could once again experience those freedoms we enjoy today.
